The decade's most triggering comedy
House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said on Thursday that he anticipates recommending up to 10 criminal referrals against Hunter Biden, including charges related to prostitution and his overseas business deals.
Comer said during an interview with Fox Business that his committee could file between “six to 10” criminal referrals against Hunter, including for violations of the Mann Act and the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
“He violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act. He was money laundering. He was racketeering. He committed wire fraud. He violated the Mann Act. The list goes on and on and on,” Comer said during the interview. “But yet he gets a slap on the wrist and the Democrats want to talk about, ‘Oh, the two-tier system of justice is racist in America.’ Well, Hunter Biden is the ultimate white privilege guy here.”
The Mann Act prohibits the interstate transportation of women or girls for prostitution.
“The Democrats kept saying, ‘Oh, we don’t have any evidence. You don’t have any evidence.’ Well, [Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene] showed them evidence,” Comer said. “She showed them evidence of the president’s son committing a crime, violating the Mann Act. She showed the plane tickets, she showed the pictures, she showed the evidence. You know, there’s no question he violated it. That’s another thing that he could have been charged with.”
Comer also commented on the release by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) of a form from an FBI confidential human source (CHS) alleging that they were told by Burisma CEO Mykola Zlochevsky that he was forced by the Biden family to pay a $10 million bribe in exchange for pressuring the Ukrainian government to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating Burisma.
“The evidence here is pretty overwhelming that Joe Biden did something for the CEO of Burisma. And what the form also says is that investigators would have a hard time – it would take them 10 years to determine how they got the money because of the way they transferred the money through so many different bank accounts,” he said.
Comer has been leading an investigation into the Biden family over their business dealings and alleged influence peddling abroad. In another interview this week, the Kentucky Republican said that congressional investigators have obtained financial records that will allegedly show transactions from Russia to the Biden family.
